In January 2008, CSTA launched the CSTA Leadership Cohort. The goal of the cohort is to identify and support two teacher leaders in each state who are
working to improve K–12 computer science education. Since the cohort was launched, cohort members have been working in their respective states to establish
K–12 computer science as an essential academic discipline and participating in a cohort online community to share experiences, strategies, and successes.
Through their participation in CSTA Leadership and Advocacy workshops and with the support of documents such as the CSTA Advocacy Toolkit, the cohort
members have also been strengthening the leadership qualities needed for effective advocacy, identifying and building partnerships with appropriate
stakeholders, and working toward organizing local and state chapters of CSTA.
In order for all of these efforts to be effective, members of the Leadership Cohort will be seeking volunteers to assist them. We will need the combined
forces of all CSTA members in order for this project to be successful. To volunteer, contact your state representatives listed below.
If you are passionate about computer science in K–12 education and are interested in volunteering to advocate on its behalf, please contact Lissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
